    Under this grant of exemption, a PIC must hold either an airline transport, commercial, private, recreational, or sport pilot certificate. The PIC must also hold a current FAA airman medical certificate or a valid U.S. driver's license issued by a state, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, a territory, a possession, or the Federal government. The PIC must also meet the flight review requirements specified in 14 CFR ยง 61.56 in an aircraft in which the PIC is rated on his or her pilot certificate.

    The above is right from the FAA website. It specifically lists the sport pilot as being adequate.

    Thank you Andy,

    One more question if I may, can a sports license include a glider or air ballon? I have been told you can obtain a sports hot air ballon with only 7 hours. Looking for the quickest route from A-Z for my pilot.

    Thanks,
    J

    Actually I have one more question still. Does anyone have more information on your COA of waiver from the FAA?

    Thanks once again,
    J

    Yes a glider or hot air balloon license would suffice.

    I did a Google search for: faa suas coa
    This seems that it might be a good starting place: https://www.faa.gov/news/updates/?newsId=82245

    I've flown into that airport many times. Florida is great for flying. I got my PPL back in 09 then partnered with a coop to own a archer and 172. We recently got our Section 333 back in August.

    Wanted to share that our 333 exemption for closed set filming has been granted as of today. If we can help anyone drop us a line.

    Cheers,

    Did you just submit the ALTA manual as the operating handbook, Jonathan?

    And were you lucky enough to already have a private pilots certificate?

    No not yet Andy, I need to add the Alta we listed 4 different models but not the Alta as it was not available when we submitted. We will be adding the Alta when we are ready to make the purchase. If there is anything you can assist with on adding the Alta I am all ears. Thank you sir

    I think the ALTA Manual Rev. C is a pretty good example of a Pilot's Operating Handbook, Jonathan so if I were going for a 333 I would use it as such.

    Andy.

    Agreed Andy. It's our attachment for the Alta. It's the best I've seen for a commercial UAV. (under 55 lbs)

    Perhaps someone has come across the answer to this question already: if I have a certified pilot as my PIC can I fly the copter for testing or fun if we're not conducting business for that specific flight? Anytime we fly an actual commercial gig the PIC would be on the sticks and I will operate the camera but generally I maintain the aircraft and run various non-commercial tests or take it out for fun.

    Last thing I'd want to do is jeopardize my PICs license - he flies a Learjet normally.

    My understanding would be that, if you are not flying commercially, then you are flying as a hobbyist for recreation so you would not be subject to the Section 333 restrictions. Just remember to fly with a big smile on your face :D so that everyone knows you're flying for fun.

    Andy.

    Oh. You might consider joining the Academy of Model Aeronautics (https://www.modelaircraft.org/joinnew.aspx) so that (a) you can support your argument that you're a hobbyist and (b) the AMA's insurance will cover you.

    Andy.

    No problem there, the Alta is fun to fly. I'll be sure the PIC keeps a furrowed brow so as not to confuse.

    I'm about wrapped with my Light Sport License for Powered Parachutes from these guys: http://seattlepowerchutes.com/

    Cost is $4k all said and done (not including accommodations), and can be completed in less than two weeks if weather permits.

    10 hours Dual+XC/2 hours Solo+XC/Written Test/Check Ride.
